Monaco Denver a Kimpton Hotel

Denver, Colorado

Trip advisor rating: 4.5 Based on 1595 reviews

The hotel

Deep in downtown Denver, Hotel Monaco has got sports and sights, bars and boutiques, and eateries and entertainment in every direction. Transformed from two historic buildings into an up-to-the-minute urban pad, it promises those mod-cons and little indulgences that make a city break special. Each night, they lay on a complimentary wine reception and, before bed, there’s a ‘nightcap pairing’ waiting – perhaps port with a sweet treat? If that sounds a bit naughty, you can always atone at the complimentary 24-hour fitness centre. You might only be a walk from the restaurants of Victorian-era Larimer Square, and brew bars, clubs and dining of the LoDo district, but there’s dinner on your doorstep – at the hotel’s much-written about Denver dining spot Panzamo, featuring north Italian cuisine.

I have found my home away from home in Denver. The staff is incredible and always so welcoming each time I enter the front door. Evening happy hour in the lobby area is a great way to end a long day. Panzano also has some of the best food in Denver!

Been staying there for years, we are now looking for a new place. What we always loved about the Monaco was the eclectic vibe The lobby was a treat to hang out in, very cool Moroccan vibe and the rooms were unlike any other, colorful and fun. Now, the recent remodel is all monochrome..boring and dull as hell. Nothing eclectic, nothing charming, just BLAH. the wall paper in the rooms looks like prison shower room white tile. The interior desecrator who dreamed this up this should be paintballed with bright colors. The city of Denver has lost a piece of its vibe. This would be a 1star except the staff is very nice and Panzanos is still god, although not what it once was. They need to rename it the hotel monochrome. Read less

Stayed three nights. Complained about no operating cold water on sink and luke warm, at best shower water. Supposedly an “engineer” visited room, but problem was not fixed. Otherwise a nice room and quiet.

I stayed at the Monaco for three nights. The rooms were beautiful, the team kind and attentive and the food at Panzano was phenomenal. Definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who is travelling to Denver.

My boyfriend and I stayed the weekend at the Kimpton in Denver and were blown away. All of the staff were extremely friendly, pleasant, and courteous. The bar and restaurant downstairs is definitely something worth going to in downtown Denver. The bar was available right at 7am ready to serve whatever you like including complimentary coffee and tea. As well as what they call wine hour happeneing at 5pm also complimentary. The front desk attendant was very caring and friendly. She even sent me a text message asking me how my room suited us and if we needed anything else. I have never experience such high class wait staff as well as attendants in a hotel setting. Even the doorman Steve was extremely friendly, helpful, and kind. Did I mention there is freshly made dough daily and freshly baked bread? The food is also fabulous and gourmet. Everything you could possibly need is in walking distance including an outdoor shopping mall, Walgreens, and countless eatery’s. I will forever book with this hotel and recommend it to friends and family in the future whenever they’re thinking of coming to Denver Colorado. Read less
